California Voters Have a Message Sacramento May Not Want to Hear

Hosted by

With the least number of possible votes, the Legislature and Governor Schwarzenegger put six measures on a special election that will take place in just three weeks. They would implement the budget deal worked out in one of the longest and most acrimonious sessions in state history. Today, the Field Poll released survey results which indicate that it will be a “send-them-a-message election.”

Proposition 1a: Limits State Spending, Establishes Rainy Day Stabilization Fund
Proposition 1b: Education Funding
Proposition 1c: Lottery Modernization Act
Proposition 1d: Protects Children’s Services Funding
Proposition 1e: Mental Health Services Funding
Proposition 1f: Elected Officials’ Salaries
